An adjustable computerized atlas of the human brain has been developed, which can be adapted to fit individual anatomy. It is primarily intended for positron emission tomography (PET) but may also be used for single photon emission CT, transmission CT, magnetic resonance imaging, and neuroimaging-based procedures, such as stereotactic surgery and(More)
We measured regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) with positron emission tomography to study changes in anatomical structures during the course of learning a complicated finger sequence of voluntary movements. Motor learning was accompanied by rCBF increases in the cerebellum, decreases in all limbic and paralimbic structures, and striatal decreases which(More)
The computerized brain atlas programme (CBA) provides a powerful tool for the anatomical analysis of functional images obtained with positron emission tomography (PET). With a repertoire of simple transformations, the data base of the CBA is first adapted to the anatomy of the subject's brain represented as a set of magnetic resonance (MR) or computed(More)
CBA, a software tool used to improve quantification and evaluation of neuroimaging data has been developed. It uses a detailed 3-dimensional brain atlas that can be adapted to fit the brain of an individual patient represented by a series of displayed images. Anatomical information from the atlas can then be introduced into the images. If the patient has(More)
We report on the observation of two neutrino-induced events which have an estimated deposited energy in the IceCube detector of 1.04±0.16 and 1.14±0.17 PeV, respectively, the highest neutrino energies observed so far. These events are consistent with fully contained particle showers induced by neutral-current ν(e,μ,τ) (ν(e,μ,τ)) or charged-current ν(e)(More)
This report describes a strategy for measurement of regional CBF that rigorously accounts for differing tracer partition coefficients and recirculation, and is convenient for use with positron emission tomography. Based on the Kety model, the measured tissue concentration can be expressed in terms of the arterial concentration, the rate constant K, and the(More)
A contour-finding algorithm is described by which the object periphery is outlined in positron emission tomography (PET) scans. The positions of maximum slopes are determined in the projections. These positions are shown to correspond well to the borders of the activity region. By backprojecting these points in the projections into the image plane, the size(More)
A computerized brain atlas adjustable to the patient's anatomy would serve serveral purposes. It could be used in stereotaxic surgery. Even more important would be its use in medical imaging to identify various brain structures, such as the basal ganglia and their nuclei, as well as individual cortical gyri. This atlas could be used for additional mapping(More)
A measurement of the Higgs boson mass is presented based on the combined data samples of the ATLAS and CMS experiments at the CERN LHC in the H→γγ and H→ZZ→4ℓ decay channels. The results are obtained from a simultaneous fit to the reconstructed invariant mass peaks in the two channels and for the two experiments. The measured masses from the individual(More)
